Ship-from-store with a compact On Demand Packaging® solution

The iQ series provides a complete, sustainable packaging solution to distribution, E-commerce, light manufacturing, and other businesses struggling with increased orders and space constraints. 

The iQ Series brings most of the flexibility and benefits of a large On Demand Packaging solution at a fraction of the cost. By integrating with PackNet® packaging software, businesses can create RSC boxes that fit products of any size—from golf balls to kitchen cabinetry.

Automate your supply chain with Mainway Handling Systems & Packsize


The smallest possible box means there’s a reduced need for unsustainable void fillers, eliminating up to 50% used.


In some cases, fewer employees are needed to achieve a faster cycle time when using On Demand Packaging machinery.


Damages to your products often occur when they jostle around inside the carton. Eliminating that empty space has been proven to greatly reduce damages.


Major shipping companies charge for packages based on weight and size; so it’s more important than ever to minimize your box sizes.


Customers use less corrugated and filler material, while also improving their shipping activities. This results in less trees cut, less landfills filled, and cleaner air for us all.


Your customers don’t want to have to throw away copious amounts of void filler sent. Smaller boxes reduce damages and improve your customers’ brand experience.
